Explore the winding cobbled streets of a place that Bill Bryson once called ‘a perfect little city’. Located in the magnificent County Durham, this quintessential university and cathedral city has the River Wear flowing through it, which allows for relaxing days enjoying river cruises or riverside strolls.
Take in the aforementioned cathedral, which was built nearly 1,000 years ago and holds 1,700 services every year. Both the cathedral and Durham Castle are World Heritage Sites, with the latter being constructed under William the Conqueror’s rule.
There is plenty to keep you entertained when staying at a holiday cottage in Durham with fun family attractions or activities to cater to groups of friends. Head to the parks and gardens including the Durham University Botanic Garden, which is set amongst tranquil woodlands on the outer edges of the city. If the kids are in tow, allow them to let off some steam at Wharton Park. This is a great area to have a picnic or grab a photo of some of the city’s landmarks, or if you’re lucky, you might catch a show at the amphitheatre.
When you’re done, proceed to the city once more where gourmet treats from award-winning eateries and gifts from artisan craft shops await.
